Important Notice for Teachers Using iRead on iOS Devices

The newest version of iOS, iOS 12.1.4, does not work with iRead recordings. Recordings are disabled by default, and if it is enabled students will not be able to advance in the program. HMH is aware of this issue and is working on a solution. Until that time, HMH recommends disabling recording in SAM, using a non-iOS device, or not upgrading to iOS 12.1.4.
